The professional ads you see for beer and spirits set a high standard for alcohol photography. But even if you don't have a studio to hand (or a contract with a glossy magazine!) there are great effects that can be achieved when shooting your favourite beverage. What is the attitude you're trying to capture, what lighting will you use and will there be any action in your shot? These are all things to consider when approaching this assignment.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
